Angels of the Universe

Höfundur: Einar Már Guðmundsson

Few novels have made such a lasting impression on the Icelandic nation as Angels of the Universe.

In the novel, the main character, Paul, tells his life story from the cradle to the grave, and describes how the shadow of mental illness falls over his life as the innocence of childhood slips away. Although the novel describes the bitterness of Paul’s fate, it is also very humorous. One of the novel’s greatest strengths is its narrative balance between moments of hilarity and bitter sadness.

In 1995, Einar Már Guðmundsson was awarded the Nordic Council Literary Prize for Angels of the Universe. The novel has been translated into nearly 30 languages and has awoken much interest around the world and received excellent reviews. The film by Friðrik Þór Friðriksson based on the novel has also enjoyed great popularity.

Translated from the Icelandic by Bernard Scudder.
